We are pleased to offer you this crochet project intentionally created for you, Create & Decorate blog friends, in honor of Flag Day. Our friend, and designer, Vickie Zelizo answered our request with this one-stitch wonder in timely fashion. Perfect to use as a mat for your table (wouldn’t it look great as a candle mat?), or tack proudly behind a twig wreath on your front door all summer long, we are sure you will find numerous ways to display!
Designed by Vickie Zelizo
This only stitch used is a single crochet, which makes this patriotic piece a very easy and quick project. (Perfect!)
